Possibly: It would depend on the cause of the lung failure that led to transplant. Asthma may persist, resolve or be mild after the transplant.

No: You might even lose a pound or two but your clothes will fit the same. The contents of your colon have little effect on your weight and certainly not on your shape.

Possible: If you have a lung transplant, you need to be under the close supervision of a physician since symptoms could indicate rejection or an infection that needs to be treated promptly.
